The Heckerling Graduate Program in Estate Planning enables attorneys to gain expertise in individual and estate planning — a specialization increasingly in demand due to the increasing complexity and uncertainty surrounding today's economic and legal environments, combined with changing population demographics.

"Where the LL.M. in Estate Planning succeeds most is how its classes are taught by national leaders in the trusts and estates field, who carefully prepare students for the issues that arise most often in practice. If you are looking for a practical and hands-on graduate program, then the LL.M. in Estate Planning is for you."
